Laura Lindsay Rosalba lives on the coast of California and makes art about the human relationship with nature. Trees, forests, gardens, and birds appear in her work, which runs the entire gamut of emotions from awe and delight to grief and humor. She secretly asks us, what will happen to this relationship? Growing up in the rolling hills and woodlands of southern Michigan she has an affection for fellow artists, Giuseppe Penone and David Nash. In recent years her art has focused on trees and forests. Using wood, plywood, wood-grained contact paper, and photographs she weaves a tale of truth, perception, and longing.
She shows in the Bay area and attended the San Francisco Art Institute. Her doctorate in depth psychology focused on the work of C.G. Jung due to her interest in the imagination.
